Default 11-16 6.7 Powerstroke Help

Main Problem is evident in the picture. Second problem is truck is stuck in Huntsville (Iím home in magnolia, truck made it to my in laws) and full replacement kit wonít be here until late Saturday. Iím hoping to replace the broken coupler with a silicone reducing one to get it Home but I need to know what size I need. Anyone care to measure it for me?

I can pull the one off my truck so you can get your truck home. I am in Willis between the 2.

Yes that is a very well known problem, replaced mine with a aluminum housing before this happen to me. You can go to ford house and get what you need. I think they keep all the parts in stock for this very problem.

Awesome gesture! Hope you get it running. We need to do a get together after things settle down for all the North Houston folks.

Is the truck pulling a load or empty? I know a couple guys that this happened to that were empty or lightly loaded and they just rolled on with the reduced power due to no turbo, one of them made the last 2 hours home like that with no issue.

Fargus, that is amazingly generous! If it comes to that Iíll take you up on it. Iíve ordered the parts just wanted to spend part of the weekend up there. FIL works out of town and I was going to take care of a few things for him. Iíll call a ford dealer but didnít think I could buy just the part that broke.

What am I looking at here guys?

So I have a 2016 6.7 with 108,000 miles and if I need to do some preventive maintenance to avoid this what do I need to replace?

Empty. I made it the last 30 min of the drive as is. Might be an option

It's an assembly and will run you ~$230 at the Ford house. Why Ford doesn't just sell the plastic piece is beyond me. I just pulled the piece I needed off the new assembly and put it on the truck. I've been through it twice already so I feel your pain. The last one I bought was the new and improved version which is suppose to fix the issue.

I don't know the technical name off the top of my head but it's an intercooler pipe if I remember correctly. It's right there on top of the motor and pretty easy to get to. I am not sure if the 2016 has the new version or the old.

This. Ford keeps the assembly in stock and you can change it yourself. Ive also seen guys use some duct tap and zip ties to get where they were going or to a parts store. Happen to my bil the other day and he just rolled to the house...slowly i might add lol

Yep, I had the same issue.....luckily it was just before a long road trip and not during. I ran up to the local Ford service department, purchased the part and had it back on the truck in no time.

Thanks everyone. Still hoping someone has a spare or can measure on the truck and Napa will have a coupler or amazon one day. My buddies all have 17+ and the size changed

TxBob, if you or someone you know around you has AAA, you can get it towed/hauled home free... I had one crap out on me in Schulenberg several years ago and had it towed to my house... 100 miles free towing, and he towed it 97.2 miles!!

No sir, not yet. Dimensions of each side would help my plan.

When mine went, I duct taped it, put two hose clamps on either side, and limped it home. It didn't build boost well (As one would imagine), but I was still able to do 70 MPH. Just took a minute to get there.

If you wanted something more solid, get some rubber hose from NAPA and jam both ends into it, and seal it off with hose clamps for the time being.

Those stupid things suck. Mine went at 130k. You can bet I have a note in my center console reminding me to replace mine at 255k next time.

Man, I just traded in my 2014 F250 with 296K miles and left my replacement in the toolbox. I carried it around with me for about 60,000 miles.

Must have copied the wrong one. They make a stock or tuned version. Stock one by that company is what I was shooting for sorry about that.

Happened to me at 156,000 miles on way home to Houston from Kerrville. Man what a noise it made, thought I ran over something. Black smoke like a locomotive taking off.
This was on Sunday. Limped back to the retirement house and went in on Monday to Ford dealer, parts guy says oh yeah we always keep this part in stock. He said that with a straight face and only a smirk. Took longer to find the socket I dropped than to change it. I will probably replace with an aftermarket one and keep the OEM for just in case.
